Pack Pride breaks down the top 40 high school senior football prospects from the state of North Carolina. Today we take a look at #11-20 in the rankings.
After numerous combines, camps, film evaluation and input from coaches, Pack Pride breaks down the top 40 football prospects in the state of North Carolina. Today we take a look at #11-20 in the rankings.
NOTES...Douglas has the size you're looking for but will need to continue to work on his quickness and agility as he prepares for the next level. NC State was in the running for Douglas early but moved on and he ultimately committed to South Carolina.
NOTES...Deluliis has a great frame and moves well for his size. He landed early offers from Virginia Tech, Minnesota, Duke, Boston College and South Carolina among others but pledged to the Hokies back in April. NC State was never a factor with him.
NOTES...Farley plays quarterback in high school but projects as an athlete, most likely wide receiver in the next level. NC State, South Carolina and West Virginia had offered along with several others but he committed to Virginia Tech in April.
NOTES...Emezie doesn't have blazing speed but he has a great catch radius, good hands and the ability to create separation with his size. He committed to NC State in June over offers from Boston College, Miami, Kentucky and West Virginia among others.
NOTES...Leake has good size, above average speed and has been very productive on the high school level. He favored Maryland, South Carolina, NC State and UNC earlier in the process but connected with the Terps and committed to them in July.
NOTES...Gill has tremendous size and uses that to dominate at times on the high school level. He's benefited in the past from teams focusing on teammate Dexter Lawrence but with Lawrence gone, he'll receive much more attention in 2016. Most feel Gill will stay relatively close to home with NC State, UNC, Virginia and Virginia Tech being the main players.
NOTES...Cauthen has tremendous size and uses that size to bully defensive backs on the high school level. He will need to improve his speed and quickness on the next level. He committed to UNC over offers from Georgia, NC State, South Carolina and others.
NOTES...Were it now for academic question marks Hodge would be rated higher. He has a crazy combination of size and speed and we think he'll have a huge year in 2016. He committed to NC State after the Pack felt he was simply too good to pass on after seeing him in camp back in June.
NOTES...Butler has continued to grow physically and now looks like a college-ready defensive tackle. It will be interesting to see how that maturation translates onto the field for his senior season. NC State, Duke, UNC and South Carolina are the major players for his commitment. Most feel he will still close to home.
NOTES...Ingram has good size, speed and fundamentals whose ranking by most was likely skewed by his early commitment to NC State. UNC and Clemson, in particular, have kept the lines of communication open with Ingram.
